Praline French Toast

We love a great brunch recipe that we can enjoy on the weekend when we are having a lazy Saturday morning. Praline French Toast can be made the night before and baked the next morning to have a very special treat right out of the oven. The toast has a very crispy crust covered in praline and pecans, it's like pie for breakfast. We will be making this recipe over and over.

My Fun Blog Assignment From The Secret Recipe Club

I belong to the Secret Recipe Club and every month we receive an assignment of someone else's blog in our group. I always get very excited to find a new blog and for a whole month get to learn about new cultures and recipes. My assignment this month is Ellie at The Hobo Kitchen. Ellie was born and raised in Nassau Bahamas and moved to the USA when she was 16, and presently resides in Hoboken New Jersey. She began her blog The Bitchin Kitchen in 2008 and latter made a decision to re-brand as The Hobo Kitchen. I found several recipes on Ellie's blog that I have bookmarked to try latter, Zucchini Butternut Squash Bake, and Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberry Pistachio Pesto. The recipe that I made for today is Overnight Praline French Toast. I sure hope you will stop over and visit Ellie's Blog and try some of her great recipes.

Praline French Toast
Ellie had originally adapted this recipe from Tracey at The Kitchen Is My Playground, Tracey comes to my Full Plate Thursday, so I knew this had to be a great recipe.  I cut the recipe in half and it was just right for my husband and me.

Miz Helen's Kitchen
Serves 4
Ingredients
1 sour dough baguette, sliced in 2 inch slices
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups half and half
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch salt
1 teaspoon butter
Topping (I used the full topping recipe)
3/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup chopped pecans
Directions
With the 1 teaspoon butter butter a 8X8 baking dish.
Lay the bread down in the pan so the slices are overlapping.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, half and half, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon nutmeg, and salt.
Pour the mixture over the bread in the pan. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator overnight.
Next Morning:
Make the Praline Topping
In a medium sauce pan on medium heat, melt the butter.
Stir in the brown sugar, corn syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Continue to stir until the mixture is smooth.
Remove the topping from the heat.
Bake The Toast
Remove the baking dish with the bread from the refrigerator and remove the plastic wrap.
Sprinkle 1/2 of the pecans on top of the bread.
Pour the topping mixture over the bread and pecans.
Sprinkle the remainder of the pecans on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes, until browned on top and the center is done.
This recipe is adapted from The Hobo Kitchen
Enjoy!
